Report: Vince McMahon Farewell Being Considered For WWE WrestleMania Weekend
Is Vince McMahon coming back to WWE?
Vince McMahon could be set to make a shocking return to WWE TV.
McMahon has been absent from WWE since he resigned as CEO and Chairman on July 22 amidst hush money and sexual misconduct allegations. It was discovered that McMahon had paid tens of millions to suppress sexual misconduct and infidelity allegations since 2006. The 76-year-old's exit was hastened after the SEC and federal prosecutors opened investigations into the payments.
McMahon remains majority shareholder in WWE, though, and the US Sun has reported that the company are considering bringing back the former CEO for WrestleMania 39 weekend. An "acknowledgement of his contributions" is reportedly an "active discussion" within the WWE creative team and an invitation to WrestleMania or a WWE Hall of Fame induction has been talked about.
Stephanie McMahon is said to be at the centre of those talks. She was appointed Co-CEO with Nick Khan after Vince McMahon's resignation.
Dave Meltzer has since confirmed the report, saying on Sunday Night's Main Event: "Yea, I've heard this for a week or two or so. The Vince McMahon Hall of Fame thing with WrestleMania in Los Angeles. It makes sense to do it. No one has told me 'yes, this is it.' I'll actually try to check on this week but it makes sense and I would be expecting it, yea."
WrestleMania 39 is set to take place on April 1 and April 2 at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California.
